Key points:

* Animals living or congregating in medium-sized to large groups are at much greater risk of acquiring 1 or more contagious infectious diseases than animals living alone or in small groups. They need protecting.

* Special recommendations for the vaccination of young animals in group situations, especially those housed in animal shelters, have been published. These generally recommend an earlier start to vaccination, more frequent vaccination while maternal antibodies are likely to be interfering with immunization, and a slightly later finish.

* Adult animals entering such facilities or engaging in group activities also need the protection of vaccination if their previous vaccination status is uncertain.
